Ashwagandha been used in Ayurvedic medicine for millennia and is sometimes called "Indian ginseng" because of its ability to protect against the effects of stress and restore a sense of wellbeing.  It is believed to reduce anxiety, support the immune system, and improve energy, memory, concentration, and even sexual potency.

Maca has also been used for thousands of years.  Touted as the "Incan superfood", it has been long celebrated for its ability to boost energy, stamina, endurance, libido and sexual function in both men and women!

Reishi mushrooms are sometimes called the "king of mushrooms".  They have energy and immune-boosting effects, as well as anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer properties.  Studies suggest that reishi mushrooms may help balance hormones, improve liver function, and reduce the risk of infection and allergies.
